Can all brown spots be burned off with a laser or chemicals?


NO!  One very important thing to remember is that you should never have a spot removed without having a physician exam it first. If a spot looks suspicious, it must be biopsied and sent to a lab to evaluate for skin cancer. If a suspicious lesion is burned off with a chemical or laser peel, then the lesion cannot be evaluated for skin cancer. If a cancerous lesion is burned off unknowingly, this could be a life threatening situation. That is why a lesion should never be burned off without first being evaluated by a physician.
